Elixir – Our Soda Fountain

The Kansas City Museum is preparing to open Elixir, honoring the Museum’s former beloved soda fountain.

Elixir, located Downstairs at Corinthian Hall, will serve a menu of grab-and-go pre-packaged and ready to serve food and beverage items including sandwiches, salads, charcuterie plates, cookies, muffins, chips, sodas and other carbonated beverages, juices, and more, and a menu of prepared food and beverage items including ice cream scoops, sundaes, phosphates, coffee and espresso drinks, tea, wine, beer, and select cocktails. Customers may purchase food and beverages and eat in Elixir or on the grounds of the Museum (weather permitting), or they may take their items to go.

The hours and menu of Elixir will increase over time as the Museum strategically grows the capacity of its food and beverage program and incorporates customer feedback to enhance the overall experience.

The Museum will announce the opening date and hours of Elixir soon.

Café at 3218, located on the first floor of Corinthian Hall, will continue to be used for ticketed culinary programs and experiences. Please view the Programs page for information about upcoming programs and events and to purchase tickets.
